This.

Spring break 2015 officially kicked off last Friday.  Emma took full advantage of sleeping in, and kicking back with some Scooby Doo instead of catching the big yellow machine that sucks her up every morning.  But sit around all day, we can not.  So the two girls and myself headed out on the town for a girl's date.

We found ourselves at the movie theater.  Tickets for Disney's Cinderella movie.  What's another few hours of my life sucked up from Disney and it's twinkling stories of glitter and prince charmings.  -blah-

But oh my. 

Disney did it g-o-o-d.  Of course there was a fairy Godmother and a good girl that caught the eye of her prince, BUT it was so much more than that.  Each scene was a beautiful tribute to Cinderella's compassionate heart.  Her love for all living things, her willingness to serve, and her courage to forgive. 

Kudos Disney.  Thank you for showing how evilness and materialism brings sorrow, and where ever there is kindness there is goodness. 

And nothing made it better than Hope on my lap and Emma sharing our arm rest.  We three girls took in every breath of the movie together.
And. I'm. So. Glad.

Dear Emma and Hope, 
Have courage.  Have kindness.  You are beautiful sisters that already show signs of a compassionate heart in each of you. 
Talk to the animals.  Serve even the meanest.  Love people, not things.
Where ever there is kindness, there is goodness.  Promise.
xoxo, Mom
Sleepover in with their buddy, Hank.
